1/ Everyone seems to be talking about WTO reform at the moment. Thought I would share some of my thoughts. This conversation has been a long time coming. The membership of the @WTO has been skirting around the issue since #MC10 in 2015 (and before @DmitryOpines & others whisper).
2/ In 2015, the WTO held the 10th Ministerial Conference. This was the first time there was no agreement among all the countries (and territories) present were unable to agree to continue the Doha Development Round of trade negotiations. #DDA. They agreed to disagree.
3/ Lots of historical reasons for this (and a separate discussion in itself) but result was that the @WTO no longer had an overarching trade negotiation to aim towards. This meant that the membership once again focused on the regular functioning of the organisation.

So, I've waded through the Evangelical Alliance's new pastoral "guidelines" for interacting with trans people (ughh, the things I do to expose #transphobic #ciswits to the world), and let's just say it's time to tear this particular sh*t-bag a new hole.

So, straight off the bat, first page of text, the use of #language is . . . well, yeah, see for yourself:

"It is important to remember that transgender is not simply an issue to be debated;" - p5, #Transformed

*sigh*

When such language gets reinforced by insisting...

10 THINGS MEN CAN DO TO PREVENT GENDER VIOLENCE @threadreaderapp 1. Approach sexual harassment & forms of #gender #violence as a MEN’S issue involving men of all ages & socioeconomic, racial/ ethnic backgrounds. View men not only as possible offenders, but as empowered bystanders
2. DON’T REMAIN SILENT
If someone you know is abusing his partner – or is disrespectful or abusive to girls and women in general – try to talk to him about it. Urge him to seek help. Or if you don’t know what to do, consult a friend. #SpeakUp #BystanderIntervention
3. HAVE THE COURAGE TO LOOK INWARD
Question your own attitudes. Don’t be defensive when something you do or say ends up hurting someone else. Try hard to understand how your own attitudes & actions might inadvertently perpetuate sexism and violence, & work towards changing them.

I was born and raised in the beautiful city of #Curitiba, southern #Brazil!
This region is famous for being cold and cloudy (yes it can be cold in Brazil!).
It is also famous for its very endemic and beautiful #Araucaria pine trees. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network @500womensci /1
#Actions speak louder than words! I am thankful for my parents for being who they are. Both always showed love for Nature, different interests and #curiosity! So no wonder by observing them I grew up to be a very curious girl who really loved Nature. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network /2
During High School I became fascinated by the #mendelian #genetics classes and the work of #gregormendel! I also loved studying animals, ecosystems and climate so the obvious choice for me in University (@PUCPR_oficial ) was BIOLOGY!! @IWS_Network #womeninscience #voicesIWS /3

@DebbieHayton I agree, Madam. I am following the debate from Italy, which is at the receiving end of #SJW crap. Young people are drinking whatever #YouTube or #Tumblr prophets are telling them from USA. The new Gospel says women do not exist except as a feeling, but also that #Gaymen and
@DebbieHayton #lesbians do not exist, we are a mere social construction. Heterosexual men are again the pivot of everything. Scholars debate about #nonheterosexual people and #nonmen as if this were a very progressive way of speaking. #transsexual is a slur, anyone can be a #transgender and
@DebbieHayton Speak in the name of the t* community, even if they never experienced what dysphoria is. The same with #Intersexual people, everyone is allowed to speak in their name, except them. You are not supposed to be #bisexual anymore because it is so binary. #Sex is a taboo word no-one

This is my son, Sam. He’s 5. And today he learned how shitty and harmful #ToxicMasculinity is. My rage meter is spiking right now so excuse me if this is a little raw but there are some things I want to say about BS #gender norms (a thread)
Sam is my middle child & he’s a terror. A “boy’s boy” as so many (not me) would say. He’s rough and tumble, he’s loud, he’s always dirty, loves trucks, plays sports and knee drops me from the couch. But he also loves a lot of “girl” things.
Sam has a collection of purses because he likes to carry things around. And he also loves to have his nails painted bright colors because he thinks they “look beautiful.” And he’s right – they are beautiful…

Contrary to popular belief, there really are more than two genders.Many people with sex chromosome variations don't know they have it, or find out later in life. Some are born with ambiguous genitals, and some look like one gender or another but their chromosomes are different.

...I saw some wild claims about my piece yesterday, so I will attempt to clarify here. my first point: there is a long history of feminist debates and discourses regarding trans ppl. Talia Bettcher discusses this in her critique of that Stock piece: dailynous.com/2018/05/30/tab…
...as someone who has played a small part in that history, and who spends much of my time in feminist settings, I can tell you that the "feminist debate" regarding trans people is largely settled, as most contemporary feminist recognize that...

So schaut aus, die Orbán-Regierung in Ungarn.
Eine Regierung, die gerade angekündigt hat, dass Gender Studies an Universitäten verboten werden.
There are only 2 universities in #Hungary, that award M.A.degrees in gender studies.
Although gender studies has been offered for years by hundreds of universities in Europe and North America, Hung.universities did not offer the discipline until last year
"Just when you think you can't go downhill from where you are: the Hungarian government has just announced a decree to ban gender studies at all Hungarian universities." Open Letter by @alengyel #Hungary facebook.com/freiepresseung… #genderstudies #gender #education

I've had my 2nd coffee and it's time for another #infosec rant. This one is aimed, with love, at my white male colleagues in this biz. I love that many of us are helping our brothers and sisters build their careers in infosec. But PLEASE be careful with the advice you give out.
Before we white dudes give career advice to others, we have to consider that the tech industry (including #infosec) still has HUGE double standards when it comes to race and gender. Thus, what worked for ME might actually be harmful advice for a woman or for a black man.
One obvious example is: "You don't need a college degree." I'm a college dropout myself - I did 2 yrs of a CS degree before deciding that school wasn't for me. By the time my class graduated, I'd already co-founded @rapid7. Great!

@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @BrightonSurvivorsNET “In the light of a highly disturbing increase of #transphobia locally & nationally…” IF everything anybody says or does is #transphobia, of course you can say it is rising. Any reputable statistics?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK “…so the date @Womans_Place_UK event feels like a concerted effort to make #trans ppl, & particularly #transwomen, feel #intimidated and #invalidated” Is it the position of SN that the sensitivities of #transwomen mean that #democracy should be suspended any time they say so?

How gender identity politics is endangering #WomensRights masquerading under the guise of “progressivism”- or in other words, as I said to this @notokyriarchy fatherfucker, an #MRA’s dream come true
- (thread)
I shouldn’t have to explain the realities of sex-based oppression in 2018! #Female is a biological sex. #Gender is the roles and norms that are imposed on those with female bodies to subjugate them to males for free sexual, domestic, and reproductive labor.
No matter how many genders a given culture had or recognized, somehow, the half of the group with a cock and balls (males) knew which other half of the group to forcibly impregnate (“#NonMen”, according to some). 🤔🤔🤔

After getting a good rap on the knuckles by editors for being a lazy lurker on social media, here's course correction. I am now doing a thread of all my reportage in 2018. (@sree and @prempanicker had encouraged me to do this many years ago 🙈) Please read and share.
While urbanisation is a global trend, villagers around #Ahmedabad don't want to live in cities. Since 2012, #Gujarat government has encouraged 12 cities to swallow up some 800 villages. And now, most of them are resisting. A take on the 'Gujarat Model'.

For #IWD2018 a look at why Prime Minister Modi's #BetiBachaoBetiPadhao (Educate girls to Save them) program will not stop India's mass #femicide until these issues are addressed. Link & THREAD.
opendemocracy.net/5050/rita-bane…
1/ Prime Minister Modi’s ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padao’ (Save the Girl, Educate the Girl) programme, launched in January 2015, was the first time since India's independence in 1947 that the Indian government had raised the issue of female genocide in a public campaign.
2/ British census data in the 18th century had attributed India’s skewed #sexratio to female #infanticide and other forms of #femicide, such as sati, but after independence subsequent governments remained bizarrely indifferent to the issue even as it reached epidemic proportions.

Cool, j'ai un exposé à faire sur un article de Virginie Julliard : #ThéorieDuGenre : comment débat-on du genre sur Twitter ?
Fun car ce sont mes binômes qui ont choisi le sujet et que ça tombe direct dans mes intérêts. Je vais faire un LT, ça me servira de notes !
Hypothèse du papier : Twitter produit un débat spécifique, en raison de ses propriétés & de la manière dont les utilisateurs s'en saisissent
